The Office of Admission is eager to engage with you!

As we invite you to join us on-campus to learn about the Occidental experience, we also acknowledge that Occidental occupies the ancestral, traditional and contemporary lands of the Tongva people. 

We hope you will join us at Oxy in-person to attend a Junior Preview Day (February 21 or 22, 2023) or for a campus visit. If you want to explore on your own, self-guided tour routes are always available at Collins House, Office of Admission. You can start getting a feel for the College by taking a virtual tour of campus or joining us for a virtual information session. We hope that you will explore all of the resources available to you on this page as well!
